Wildlife Advocate, Nature Program
Jennifer Sherry uses a multifaceted approach to conserve and protect imperiled species. From enacting broad-scale policy reforms to working with individuals on the ground, she promotes coexistence between people and wildlife, with a special focus on large carnivores like wolves, bears, and mountain lions. Her efforts bring together scientists, state agencies, conservation organizations, and communities to work toward shared goals. Prior to joining NRDC, as a broadly trained environmental scientist, Sherry has put her skills to use on projects involving climate change adaptation, disaster risk reduction, and wildlife conservation, primarily in mountain environments. She holds a bachelor’s and master’s degree in environment and natural resources from the Ohio State University, and a Ph.D. in environmental science from Charles Sturt University in Australia. She is based in NRDC’s Bozeman, Montana office.
